GTA 5: Bus Tour Random Event Guide

A recurring Random Event called the Bus Tour lets players see and learn about Los Santos’ most notable landmarks and allows players to “Stalk celebrities from the comfort of a bus.”

With all the fast-paced action brought by the main storyline missions, it is nice to sit back and marvel at Los Santos’ most memorable spots.

In this guide, we have outlined everything you need to know about the Bus Tour Random Event.

Bus Tour Random Event

The Bus Tour (or Tour Bus) Random Event is a recurring event in GTA 5 where you can ride a tour bus that takes you around 13 of Los Santos’ famous landmarks for just $40. Each Bus Tour will take about 15-20 minutes to complete depending on traffic conditions.

The tour consists mostly of drive-bys around celebrity homes and other notable landmarks around Los Santos. The tour starts at 7:00 am daily and ends at 7:00 pm the same day.

Despite being a daytime-only event, tours that start very close to the cutoff time will run through the evening until all 13 destinations are completed.

The Bus Tour Random Event is necessary for getting 100% completion in GTA 5. However, you only need to complete the Bus Tour once to get the achievement.

Where is the Bus Tour Event in GTA 5?

The Bus Tour Event can be spotted at the Vinewood Wax Haven along Vinewood Boulevard. Head to Up-n-Atom Burger between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm in-game, approach the Tour Bus, and look for the Vinewood Star Tour Guide waiting outside the Tour Bus to join the tour.

Make sure you join the tour between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm only, as the tours end at strictly 7:00 pm. Going to the tour start point beyond 7:00 pm will result in the tour bus leaving and the tour guide announcing the end of tours for the day.

Bus Tour Route

The Bus Tour is guaranteed to drive through 13 landmarks around Los Santos. However, the true number is 19 if you count 6 minor points of interest that the tour guide points out throughout the tour.
